Univisión premiered the Turkish telenovela on Tuesday, January 11 “Mother” (“Anne” in her original language). The fiction starring Cansu Dere and Beren Gökyıldız is an international success that has achieved high audience ratings in the countries where it has been broadcast and where it continues to be broadcast.

“Mother” premiered in her home country, Turkey, in October 2016 and ended in June 2017. However, the Turkish drama is still broadcasting on various television networks such as Univisión, where we will learn the story of Professor Zeynep and his student Melek.

The Ottoman production has a single season consisting of 33 episodes and was co-produced by MedYapım and MF Yapım. “Mother”, based on the successful Japanese drama Mother, is a story that has moved almost everyone and the Univision audience has not been the exception, as they showed it through social networks.

THE REACTION OF THE PUBLIC OF UNIVISION WITH THE HARMFUL STORY OF “MADRE”

“Mother” tells the story of Melek, a 7-year-old girl who is a victim of abuse by her mother and her boyfriend. His life changes when he crosses paths with Zeynep (Dere), a teacher who arrives at the school where the girl studies and realizes her dramatic situation.

Seeing that no one does anything to help the girl, the teacher decides to protect her and, with Melek’s consent, feigns her death and kidnaps her, to start a new life together, as mother and daughter. Zeynep will do everything possible to give you the home and family warmth that you long for.

This moving story has reached the screens of Univisión, where it premiered on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. The fiction starring Cansu Dere and Beren Gökyıldız has managed to touch the most sensitive fibers of the audience in the broadcast of its first episode.

The scenes of “Mother”, which Cansu Dere also stars as Zeynep, become so harsh that more than one viewer said it was difficult for him to continue watching.

“The hardest thing is to see how the mother leaves it in a garbage bag, until then I could see it. Then I couldn’t take it any longer to finish it, “said one user.

“I cried a lot for the girl, I don’t want to imagine the other chapters,” added another viewer on social networks about the first glimpse of the Turkish soap opera that was one of the most exported of 2018.
